Are you a Board Passer Nurse Without a Job? Maybe You Also Lack Hospital Training and Experience. : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

Are you a Board Passer Nurse Without a Job? Maybe You Also Lack Hospital Training and Experience.

· Filed Under Insights, Rumour has it 

Based on what has been reported in many news angle, it seems that the lack of training facility for nursing graduates such as local hospitals, including government-owned and controlled in the Philippines are producing more and more unemployed nurses.

Although many of our unemployed nurses passed the local nursing board, one of the key pain of nursing recruiters in the country is the lack of the nurses’ experience and training in actual hospital work.  Without it, they cannot be endorsed to potential foreign employers who are seeking experienced nurses only.

The root cause of the problem is not the oversupply of nurses per se but the lack of government funding even to hire these nurses in the government-owned hospitals.  If the government can allocate funds for this and provide even temporary employment to our nurses, then they can go out and find work elsewhere after.

The sad news is, there are reported cases that some new nurses are even sacrificing and more than willing to pay the local hospital just to admit them so they can have work experience in their resumes.  This is becoming a trend and some folks are reported to be benefiting from it.

It is also well known that there are a lot of shortage of nurses and doctors in most of the government owned  hospitals aside from the scary facilities that have not been refreshed for years due to lack of funding.  Some patient are more afraid of contracting sickness inside government hospitals than their ailments.

We urged the Philippine government to look into this funding solution quickly.  Adding necessary funding to local government hospitals so they can hire nurses (and doctors) to gain experience is a win-win trade off not only for the nurses but also for the sick Filipino folks as well.
